The long arm of the law will be reaching those business people who are behind the importation of illegal weapons through the Bridgetown Port.
“If they are being used unwittingly, it has to be stopped. If they are participating in it willingly, that has to come to an end,” Attorney General Dale Marshall declared on Saturday.
The Attorney General was speaking 48 hours after responsibility for the Police Force and the Preservation of Public Order was shifted from Home Affairs Minister Edmund Hinkson to him on Thursday.
His comments came as he revealed the Bridgetown Port would be getting two new container scanners and one of the existing ones would be fixed by the end of February so as to allow for better detection of illegal weapons.
